"The Gesundheit Institute is a pie in the face of greed - by taking the most expensive thing in America, health care, and giving it away for free."
-- Patch Adams

* Because we are interested in promoting wellness, we will integrate medicine with performing arts, arts and crafts, agriculture, recreation, nature, and social service.
-- Patch Adams

It [The Gesundheit Institute] also won't separate the healing arts. All of them work together - traditional medicine and surgery with acupuncture, homeopathy, etc. We want to make the hospital a place a person can't wait to come to, whether they are working there or being there as a patient. Because we are interested in promoting wellness, we will integrate medicine with performing arts, arts and crafts, agriculture, recreation, nature, and social service. Those are some skeletal parts.
-- Patch Adams

Good health is one of the most important ingredients for a happy and productive life. And yet, many people do not have access to health care and live in conditions that spread disease.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

 

"In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties."
-- Henri-Frederic Amiel

* "World Health Day is an opportunity to highlight the problem, but above all, to stimulate action. It is an occasion to call on all partners -- governments, international donors, civil society, the private sector, the media, families and individuals alike -- to develop sustainable activities for the survival, health and well-being of mothers and children. On this World Health Day, let us rededicate ourselves to that mission."
~ Kofi Annan

"Children are our future, and their mothers are its guardians. And yet, this year alone, more than half a million women will die in pregnancy or childbirth. Almost 11 million children will die before they reach the age of five -- 4 million of them in the first month of life. Almost all these deaths will happen in developing countries. A large number of them could be prevented.

When adopting the Millennium Development Goals five years ago, the world's governments promised, by the year 2015, to reduce maternal deaths by three quarters and cut child mortality by two thirds. While there has been progress in some regions, there has been stagnation in others. In some countries, progress has even been reversed.

World Health Day is an opportunity to highlight the problem, but above all, to stimulate action. It is an occasion to call on all partners -- governments, international donors, civil society, the private sector, the media, families and individuals alike -- to develop sustainable activities for the survival, health and well-being of mothers and children. On this World Health Day, let us rededicate ourselves to that mission."
~ Kofi Annan

He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.
~Arabic Proverb

* Everything is now for sale. Even those areas of life that we once considered sacred like health and education, food and water and air and seeds and genes and a heritage. It is all now for sale.
-- Maude Barlow

I think you might dispense with half your doctors if you would only consult Dr. Sun more.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

A pen rather than a lance has been my weapon of offence and defence; with its point I should prick the civic conscience and bring into a neglected field men and women who should act as champions for those afflicted thousands least able to fight for themselves.
-- Clifford Beers

* "Creating a world that is truly fit for children does not imply simply the absence of war. It means having the confidence that our children would not die of measles or malaria. It means having access to clean water and proper sanitation. It means having primary schools nearby that educate children, free of charge. It means changing the world with children, ensuring their right to participate, and that their views are heard and considered. It means building a world fit for children, where every child can grow to adulthood in health, peace and dignity."
-- Carol Bellamy

* A diet higher in whole grains and legumes and lower in beef and other meat is not just healthier for ourselves but also contributes to changing the world system that feeds some people and leaves others hungry.
-- Dr. Walden Bello

* I do care a great deal about the environment but my real work and my greatest challenge is trying to overcome deceits that end up jeopardizing public health and safety.
-- Erin Brockovich

I am an advocate for awareness, the truth, and a person's right to know. I believe that in the absence of the truth, all of us stand helpless to defend ourselves, our families and our health, which is the greatest gift we have.
-- Erin Brockovich

* There can be no real growth without healthy populations. No sustainable development without tackling disease and malnutrition. No international security without assisting crisis-ridden countries. And no hope for the spread of freedom, democracy and human dignity unless we treat health as a basic human right.
-- Gro Brundtland

you cannot tackle hunger, disease, and poverty unless you can also provide people with a healthy ecosystem in which their economies can grow.
-- Gro Brundtland

 

We are working towards a shared vision of the future for health among all the world's people. A vision future in which we develop new ways of working together at global and national level. A vision which has poor people and poor communities at its centre. And a vision which focuses action on the causes and consequences of the health conditions that create and perpetuate poverty.
-- Gro Brundtland

You cannot achieve environmental security and human development without addressing the basic issues of health and nutrition.
-- Gro Brundtland

Never have so many had such broad and advanced access to health care. But never have so many been denied access to health.
-- Gro Brundtland

* Peace is no mere matter of men fighting or not fighting. Peace, to have meaning for many who have known only suffering in both peace and war, must be translated into bread or rice, shelter, health, and education, as well as freedom and human dignity - a steadily better life. If peace is to be secure, long-suffering and long-starved, forgotten peoples of the world, the underprivileged and the undernourished, must begin to realize without delay the promise of a new day and a new life.
-- Ralph J. Bunche

"There is simply no good reason why in the 21st century, thousands of women and children in developing countries should be dying during childbirth and the early years of life.
~ Honourable Aileen Carroll, Minister of International Cooperation, CIDA

 

* The awareness that health is dependent upon habits that we control makes us the first generation in history that to a large extent determines its own destiny.
~ Jimmy Carter

* Ill health is an important factor that forces the poor to remain poor. If they make a little bit of money, one episode of illness can wipe them out.
-- Zafrullah Chowdhury

"Demand that your government pays more attention. It's immoral that people in Africa die like flies of diseases that no one dies of in the United States. And the more disease there is, the more political unrest there will be, leading to more Darfurs, which the U.S. will have to pay to fix."
~ Bill Clinton

* "I have never believed we had to choose between either a clean and safe environment or a growing economy. Protecting the health and safety of all Americans doesn’t have to come at the expense of our economy’s bottom line. And creating thriving companies and new jobs doesn’t have to come at the expense of the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the natural landscape in which we live. We can, and indeed must, have both."
~ Bill Clinton

* Drugs are not always necessary. Belief in recovery always is.
-- Norman Cousins

* "The risks of transporting deadly nuclear waste, the environmental justice impacts and the long-term health effects of both these projects are untenable...We cannot afford to be silent on these important issues."
~ James Cromwell

* America's health care system is neither healthy, caring, nor a system.
-- Walter Cronkite

* "UNICEF is helping mothers realize their dreams for the future — a future in which the basic needs for a child’s survival: food, clean water and simple health care — are guaranteed."
-- Jane Curtin

"...we all have an obligation as citizens of this earth to leave the world a healthier, cleaner, and better place for our children and future generations.”
~ Blythe Danner

The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing.
~ Larry Dossey
 

 

Social entrepreneurs are married to a vision of, for example, a better way of helping young people grow up or of delivering global healthcare. They simply will not stop because they cannot be happy until their vision becomes the new pattern.
-- Bill Drayton
